Circus Factory are delighted to introduce our once off introduction classes to different circus disciplines. From climbing aerial silks to spinning inside a Cyr Wheel all our introduction classes are suitable for the complete beginner and are a perfect to way to try out a new skill before committing to a term of classes. 

Join Jude for an introduction class into the art of Funambulism! Or as we also know it the Tight Wire. This class will introduce participants to the practice of tight wire walking. Requiring not just balance and core mobility, but concentration and focus, makes this discipline not just physically challenging but with many mental benefits in developing critical thinking and risk taking. We work on a low training wire so need need to fear heights!

All students will be able to explore the class at their own level with modifications offered for different abilities. The class will also focus on conditioning and balance exercises that can be practiced off the wire to mobilise the body and prepare it balance training. 


Covid protocols will be adhered to including individual equipment and training area per student. Please review our protocols below before registering and if you have any questions you are welcome to direct them to
